When Sarah told me about Feel Unique’s Pick ‘N’ Mix service I was so intrigued and when I looked at the amazing amount of fabulous products they had to choose from I new I had to treat myself.
So how does it work? You choose up to five samples per month for FREE. You pay only £3.95 shipping and handling fee but you then get a £3.95 gift voucher in your follow-up email which you can redeem on a future purchase (excluding Pick ‘n’ Mix) in store.
So what samples did I choose?
Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium Nuit Blanche Eau De Parfum – Live the night this electrifying new interpretation of the iconic BLACK OPIUM coffee signature. A seductive white coffee floral fragrance designed to give the wearer a burst of energy to last through the night.
I tried the original Black Opium a while back and really liked it, still no idea why I haven’t bought it yet, but I only realised this was a different version of it when it arrived. It’s fabulous and I actually think I like it more than the original, they are quite similar but this one is a bit lighter and I think it smells like it has lots of vanilla in it, like a fancy vanilla latte. Yum!
Percy & Reed Smooth Sealed and Sensational No Oil Oil For Thick Hair – For silky hair which is as smooth as a Singapore Sling at sunset, Percy & Reed have used their special frizz-fighting pomegranate seed oil. Not only that, it will nourish and repair your hair too, for perfect results every time. Softens and rehydrates thick, dry, damaged, coarse hair which is frizz-prone and hard-to-manage hair, the perfect prep for styling.
I’ve heard great things about Percy & Reed products but have never actually tried any of them before. I have the driest thickest hair in the world and this sounded like something I NEEDED! I haven’t tried it yet but I have a feeling I’ll be buying a full size of it.
Marc Jacobs Divine Decadence Eau De Parfum – The Marc Jacobs Divine Decadence is a new sparkling champagne interpretation of the original just as decadent.
Notes: Champagne Extract, Orange Blossom, Bergamot, Gardenia, Hydrangea, Honeysuckle, Saffron, Vanilla and Amber.
The new Marc Jacobs Decadence perfume bottles are the prettiest perfume bottles ever in the history of the world and I was so excited about trying them out. I tried the original Decadence when I was out shopping and I loved it at first but then it completely changed and oh I just hated it. It’s just not for me. I was telling Sarah about my experience and she was saying that Divine Decadence was really nice and it sounded like a much lighter version of the original so I thought I’d give it a shot. I wanted so badly to love this perfume, I can just imagine the beautiful bottle amongst all my other perfumes, but I just don’t like it, not even a little bit. I’m so devastated. Such first world problems eh?
I hope that maybe next year Marc Jacobs will release a new Decadence in a hot pink bottle with a gunmetal chain, the same black lid and tassel and that it smells like fruits and candies. That’s the dream.
Leonor Greyl Sérum de Soie Sublimateur Daily-Use Styling Serum for Thin Hair – Silk proteins for silky-smooth hair, specially selected plant oils for increased flexibility and manageability. Used on damp hair, Leonor Greyl Sérum de Soie Sublimateur Daily-Use Styling Serum for Thin Hair will detangle, used on dry hair it will smooth and condition. In all cases it works to protect and nourish your hair without weighing it down. This is the perfect formula for bringing out the beauty in your hair, on a daily basis.
I’ve already said that I have thick hair and I know this says it’s for thin hair but in my opinion any serum is better than no serum. I haven’t tried this yet but I like how it says that it doesn’t weigh your hair down.
CULT51 Immediate Effect Serum – A restorative super-active, anti-ageing serum which works in conjunction with your own skin cells; stimulating collagen, elastin and cellular regeneration. This sophisticated lightweight formula has been clinically proven to target fine lines, wrinkles, dark circles and skin imperfections.
This had me at “immediate effect!” I’m all for anti-ageing and getting rid of any fine lines and imperfections that I might have. But I’m kinda hoping that I don’t like it when I try it because it’s a whopping €121.60 for a 30ml bottle! Eeek!
I’m really happy with my first Feel Unique Pick ‘N’ Mix and cannot wait for next month so I can get another! I think I may go with all perfumes the next time, the sample sizes are perfect for travelling. They really have a great selection to choose from.
